NEIL - 1920 BELL CO,TEXAS index - did NOT see LEONARD/MANDIE SELLERS with son W.H. born 1917 I do NOT have BELL CO, TEXAS marriages-(CHECK for marriage where)

LEONARD AND HALLIE SELLERS should have death certificates - do you know WHERE they died?

DO you know any brother/sisters of W.H. SELLERS 1917 Tx?

COULD you send us names/ages and where born of some of the children of W.H. and wife - might help someone else connect to a brother/sister!

TARRANT CO, TEXAS has some names similiar , but, NO marriages of them here- BUT, could have married in Bell, child born there in 1917 and came to TARRANT in 1920!

WHERE did his mom and dads info come from? death cert? or family? Any other marriages? Any other relation to California?

This is what you find and WHY you need above info=

1920 TARRANT CO, TX LEONARD SELLERS 26 , TEXAS HALLIE, 27 TX CLEO 8, TX W.D. 7m TX

1920 JONES CO, TX LEONARD SELLERS - no ages/states given HALLIE, wife no children

1920 ELLIS CO, TX LEONARD SELLERS 45, TX SADAY 47 TX, wife ELISE 21 dau, TX

ANY of these LEONARD SELLERS could be possible, if age off - or a second marriage of LEONARD? or differant spelling on CENSUS and NOT on index!

W.H. SELLERS 1917 brother/sisters might be where to check - give names, went where,---counties/states VERY important. marie, iowa


TARRANT CO, TX = 5-8-1937 Leonard SELLERS died
      "              "     "      2-14-1917 Margutio DeLa SELLERS died
BELL CO, TX=           3-14-1933 Mattie Olevia SELLERS died

Neil,

This may be completely coincidental, but it may provide a lead.  I have
a death certificate for:

Anna Whitaker Sellers, 10/8/1857 - 2/14/1943
born Harrison County KY, died Brooksville, Bracken County KY
widow of Leslie Sellers
father: M. D. Whitaker, born Harrison County, KY
mother: Sarrah L. Petty, born Mercer County, KY
informant: C. F. Haley, Brooksville, KY

I do not know whether I am related to the above person.  My line of
Sellers go back to Bracken County in the 1830s, but there are at least
three lines that we have not connected yet.

If you are able to trace back to northern KY, the above information may
help fill a gap.  Please let me know what you find.

This is a great list!  Glad to have you aboard.

Monte Sellers, Atlanta






Marie: I'm really in a delicate situation here in that I'm a step-father to some children whose dad was given up for adoption. This dad's father W.H. Sellers) had an affair with a woman so not only do I not have a  marriage license to look up I rally don't have much of anything else either. The birth certificate of my step-son's father is sealed and unavailable also.
Help! Neil



I don't have any additonal information but I do have W.H. Sellers death certificate it that would help. Do you have a FAX? Neil


NEIL - so you are looking for the mother? the woman who gave birth to the son who was adopted? the woman who had the affair with W.H.SELLERS? as you know all the SELLERS names, right? advise, if I missed the question!

Isn't there a group called ???? on the internet, I believe- name of group probably connected to Adoptions, etc- they help children get there records opened up? I don't know the rules - time limits, etc- OTHERWISE, SCHOOL records =?(but, if birth cert sealed, probably no info was given to anyone to reveal parent) CITY DIRECTORY would give families living there - if anyone else in family knew about it - My info only goes to 1920 - depending on when they went to Ca, TEXAS may have some State info in 1925 as far as proving W.H. SELLERS parents (which of these Leonard/Mandie are his - I would contact the counties TARRANT and JONES CO, TX FOR 1925 state census or if in CA, start with Tulare Co. and discuss with other SELLERS living close - but, if mother is prime target - the ADOPTION group, would probably give you the best course to take - THANKS for sharing - marie, iowa


> Thanks for the help. Attached is a print file containing the only really hard evidence of Sellers that I have. Neil


NEIL - I must have deleted last letter from you - re: about second try on sending death certificate info - NOW, I didn't even find that- sorry- SECOND send - I hit the 1.2 and it did send me to (copy/file) then sent me back to home page- I'm sorry I can't be of help - on sending info - someday, when I have a scanner, I'll be looking for info also- YOU could just TELL me the info!! but, if you want to practice, PLEASE, DO SO, I don't mind - JUST SEND to me personally - not the SELLERS members -

SEND to mari@netins.net subject SELLERS - or I won't pause long enough to read

MY uncle NIEL and PAUL SELLERS went to SAN JOSE? and WHITTIER CA - uncle PAUL SELLERS and wife MARGARET had broken up family also - but, NOT as early as yours - I'm still trying to find contact with them- YOU have my address, use it if needed- I believe I posted your info to TEXAS pages - we do have births/dates- http://www.netins.net/showcase/sellerfamily THANKS and GOOD LUCK NEIL - marie, iowa
